of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that t
. the obama campaign has spent months and millions trying to convince voters that mitt romney is unethical. >> he won't release his tax returns before 2010. >> unprepared. >> my opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. >> unattached to reality. >> my thinking is maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> with all those alleged problems, surely he has no chance of prevailing against president obama in the debates, right? well, not according to the obama campaign. >> mitt romney i think has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. >> reporter: the romney team says president obama is weak on foreign policy. >> what we do not see is steady consistent american leadership. >> reporter: weak on the economy. >> he's over his head. and he's swimming in the wrong direction. >> reporter: and just plain weak overall. >> the president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. >> reporter: with all those weaknesses, surely he would be easy to beat in a debate, right? oh, no. not according to mitt romney. >> he's the president
. as you said, i remember during past elections, every losing candidate has had this. the hillary voters in the 2008 primary had their own circle. they were convinced that the support for obama was way overstated. you were totally right about 2004, the 2002. like every election this happens, but the weird how this really happened in the last week was kind of remarkable. >> isn't this -- i think this is sort of a subset of a larger trend on the right? it's been going on for a really long time. there's a sort of combination of self-pity and sort of feeding the idea that they are victims of this massive conspiracy by the left to lie about everything and that they are truly the majority. i've been calling it the fun house mirror. i love your characterization of it even more. but there is this notion that everything is a lie. climate change is a lie. the idea that liberals are just lying to you all the time. this distrust of media, distrust of numbers, distrust of data. everything is a lie. >> it's also funny because a lot of the paul ryan supporters, it's not politics. it's math. liberals ta
. the obama campaign is out with a new ad where the president looks into the camera and seems to be making a closing argument to the voters out there. >> during the last weeks of this campaign, there will be debates, speeches and more ads. if i could sit down with you in your living room or around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say. when i took office, we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and were mired in iraq. today i believe as a nation we are moving forward again. >> nbc's first read makes the point about this ad. they say this new obama spot has the feeling of a closing tv ad 10 days out from an election day because the obama camp believes we're ten days out or already there. mark murray joins me from washington. it's interesting, president obama described former president clinton as the commander in chief of explaining stuff or something. you get that feel with in closing ad. you and your team point out that so many states already are in the process of early voting and we'll have even more at end of next week. >> we're 40 days from election day, and that ad that president o
tried to connect with voters in a new ad in which he looked directly at the camera, president obama is out with his own doing the very same thing. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. >> today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. we have much more to do, to get folks back to work and make the
is an ad you almost play out before election date. the obama campaign is treating this like a week out before election day because precisely all this early voting. 30 states across the country, voters in those states a voting in some form or fashion, whether it's absentee or early at includes in the battleground states of iowa, north carolina, new hampshire, wisconsin and virginia. tamron, next week ohio and floridstart voting in some form or fashion. voting is under way, even though election day is 40 days from now. >> talkbo sta states. we have maps built in to give people a glimpse of nationde how many states are in the process of early voting. we have the map. some of them at the end of the week, but mark, is there anything to compare this to at least fromheasen well, in the last general election we also saw a lot of early voting in a lot of states. some states scaled back a little bit on the early voting, but i think it's here to stay going forward. what's interesting isheba campaign saw early voting as a way to maximize their folks and bank the votes on their side. for example, w
when they reinforce a perception that either undecided voters or the public more generally have about you. that perception created i would say by millions and millions of dollars by barack obama spending in swing states is that mitt romney is a wealthy person who is buy and large looking out for the wealthy and dismissive of the poor and middle class. video reinforced that and i would say i would point to an nbc/wall street journal poll, when you mention the middle class and romney ad, nbc wall street journal asked which candidate cares more or is more focused on the middle class. obama had a 19 point lead, 53/34 on that. i don't think mitt romney wins that question even if he wins the election but he can't lose it that badly. >> chris aliz scizilla, and tha karen. thank you for joining us. >> joining me for a closer look into the race, vin weber adviser to the romney campaign and governor ed rendell, a political analyst. welcome to you both. vin, this is a big challenge. you know the numbers, the battleground states better than i do. ohio, ohio, ohio. how do you do it if ohio becomes
